I see your game against Wexford is down to be played in Wexford Park. Its a huge journey for Antrim supporters , why not get your county board to persuade Wexford to come to Croke Park for what would be a very attractive double header in conjunction with the Dublin v Offaly quarter final on the same date,

clonjon, I think that idea was mooted but Wexford were vehemently opposed to it, which is fair enough, as they were given a home draw and we are playing in the Leinster championship.

It looks like Hippy will be fit for Wexford which is a huge boost. Shane Mc Naughton will also be ready for the Wexford game, he missed the Laois game due to illness rather than injury. After such a good win in Laois would you change the team? Personally I'd fit Hippy in a full back, I know it would be harsh on whoever misses out but I think he is too important to leave out.

i think Hippy will start in Fullback, with Arron Graffin moving to wing back to replace Neal McAuley who got sent off. Also, Shane will start in place of Karl McKeegan who got ribs apparently broke against Dunloy.

Team:

O'Connell

McGuinness
Donnelly
Molloy

Graffin
M Herron
C Herron

Shiels
McFall

McCrory
Stewart
Black

McNaughton
McManus
mcCann

Don't know why dinny's so surprised about second half the performance, perhaps it had something to with wexford raising their game
and many of our players not being good enough at this level. To much made of us beating Laois who like ourselves are a div. 2 team
It would suit Dinny better if he put his and the teams energy into getting us back into the top tier. the only problem there is you have to be
consistant which we have never been under his managment having one or two good performances in June has been our lot.
